My problem is just the opposite...I am the caring overly sensitive sop you take me for; chatting up ladies, worried about offending, taking offense too easily...all these things are exactly as folks see me in the real world.

The best example here was how NC hating me for appearing to "put on a smoking jacket" when posting; then he realized that's the way I talk, and we become chums.

And the biggest one of all? Control freak nature, anal retentive that has to be in charge...any circle of friends from any time period of my life will admit to you: "yeah, that over-bearing jerk always was the leader of our little group; not sure why..."

Sound familiar? No pat on the back--in fact, I am trying to break myself of this insane need for recognition and love and attn, so what do I do? Stop posting as much...

Go figure...I am as transparent as them come.

Very interesting El Tell ...

I don't think I have ever encountered a control freak who was caring and over sensitive.
I can see how the caring / over sensitive bit would fit in with your self-confessed giving-a-shit quality. But where does the whining fit in ?
Do you whine whilst trying to impose your will over a group ?

Control freakery and caring / over sensitive together would definitely qualify you instantly as PM in this country.
Consider Tony Blair and David Cameron. Both utter control freaks with a thin veneer of fake caring and sensitivity. If you can do both of those for real, well you'd be in.

Gordon Brown; just a charmless control freak. See where that got him.

WT for PM, I say ;0)

It's in the "I gotta have my way" aspect...of course, since I am always mustering my most logical arguments to win the day, and never letting things drop without the last word, perhaps it doesn't fit the "whining" defn.

Folks at times have observed something along the lines of "there's Tell again...whining about we all have to be nice to each other--grow up, Tell!" (when I took the PM role here seriously--I would've been chiming in with advice to EVERYONE participating in ANY bash and forth exchange of insults as what happened in this thread; now I largely ignore it).

That might not be whining so much as excessive "coercion" to fall in line (my line of course)?
